Wednesday Walk: Pilot Mountain State Park

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT


Left to Right: Dreamy Duskywing, Brown Elfin, Juvenal’s Duskywing, and Gemmed Satyr

We will meet at the top of the mountain near the restrooms. We recommend bringing a packed lunch and beverages. Binoculars and camera will come in handy for this walk. No need for sunscreen or bug spray. We will be walking through grasses, shubbery, and on trails, so be sure to wear sturdy footwear, hiking shoes or boots.

This early season walk at Pilot Mountain will hopefully provide an additional opportunity to catch some of the Limited Time Only (LTO) butterflies that can only be seen during the beginning of spring. Our target species for this walk include the Brown Elfin, the Sleepy and Dreamy Duskywings, Gemmed Satyrs, and Mourning Cloaks.

Perfect butterflying weather is not necessary for this walk to be conducted. However, if there is a forecast for certain rain it will be cancelled. Please register to receive updates about this walk.
